president talks a lot about republicans bringing things to the brink with things like the debt ceiling, which i've been very vocal about republicans should not try to have that fight on the debt ceiling. but we have a budgeting problem in washington where, you know, the senate can essentially just walk away from the game of doing a budget in washington. that's never happened before. and now it's happened three years in a row. so the only way this system can budget is to do it on these crisis points. >> we have a budget problem, michael. and president squarely addressed the middle class this week. did you find it effective? how much time does a second-term president really have to implement a domestic agenda? >> i think about six to eight months because what happens is, even lbj in '65 or fdr in '37, after the enormous landslides, the two biggest congresses in the last 100 years, they knew if they waited longer than six to eight months, members of congress would be thinking about the next re-election. that he would always be a lame duck in the first year of his second term. so i think the president is right to act fast. >> so do you think

this need to realize we didn't take any action on the debt ceiling because we didn't want to hurt the credit of the country, but sequester, and then the continuing resolutions at the end of march, these are the two times when the american people need to understand is there anybody in washington serious about getting control of spending? remember when the president proposed the sequester nearly two years ago, it was all about spending restraint. it didn't have a thing to do with raising taxes. >> schieffer: all right, well, governor, mr. mayor, thanks to both of you. we'll be back in just a minute to talk about the departing pope and who the new within is going to be.

-january. we discussed the debt ceiling. you voted against the deal to suspend the debt ceiling with 34 of your fellow senators but it passed anyway. what do you need to see in a bill to avoid the sequester sometime between now and the end of february? >> ali, first of all, as someone who did run a business for 22 years, i'm embarrassed about the way we're operating the country right now and i want to say that up front. sequestration is a bad idea. we ought to be doing our business, appropriating and budgeting, making decisions on cost-benefit analysis. these continual deadlines and cliffs is no way to run a country much less a company. >> when you run a company, you have these things called poison pills. that's what the sequestration was. right? something to awful it would prevent a certain course of action from taking place. why is it that elected officials don't treat that the same way that you would if you were in business? if you had a poison pill in your business to say if you don't do something x will happen or if you do x would happen, you'd avoid that bad thing. >> a poison pill p

happen. although it is not like the debt ceiling where immediately you feel the pain the day after. it takes a while for the pain to be felt. there is about three weeks before the money runs out for the government to function. i think in that period of time, they will come up with some better arrangement than the axe across the cleaver. there will be significant spending reduction. this may be the first time people will feel it. >> emily, you are right there in d.c. from all of the folks you are talking with right now, do you hear anything? we have 11 days before it goes into effect. >> i feel like there is a lot of urgency behind contingency planning. i feel like there is much more of an inevitability. there is a sense more so than the fiscal cliff. the cuts come in more gradually and there there is more time. the deadline will pass. the feeling of inevitability. there is a lot of contingency planning going on. >> we will talk about this next weekend as it looms closely with the deadline. let's switch gears and talk with eleanor about the opposition to the nominee john hhagel. here is
